Computer does not sleep

If your Windows computer can automatically run screensaver, turn off display and even hibernate when you manually put it to sleep, but it seems to never automatically sleep (standby), AND you have uTorrent running:
  • Open uTorrent
  • Click Options > Preferences > General
  • Uncheck "Prevent standby if there are active torrents."
  • Click OK.
This was really an epiphany for me as I had given up trying to solve the problem several days ago, then just today I stumbled upon that setting and remembered the problem I gave up on.
